Tom Hanks recalls juicy details from working on the Mona Lisa painting in the 'Da Vinci Code'

Tom Hanks recalls changing his pants in front of the Mona Lisa
Hanks played Robert Langdon in the Da Vinci Code and reprised the role in 2009's Angels & Demons and 2016's Inferno.

Tom Hanks revealed how the Mona Lisa exhibit once turned into his personal changing room.

The actor, 65, opens up about making the 2006 Ron Howard mystery-thriller The Da Vinci Code, filming on location in Paris.

While he admitted the big-screen Dan Brown adaptation was "hooey," he praised the memorable experiences and access he got to have while making the project.

"Let me tell you something else about The Da Vinci Code. It was my 40th-something birthday. We were shooting in the Louvre at night. I changed my pants in front of the Mona Lisa!" said Hanks of the Leonardo da Vinci painting, according to The New York Times. "They brought me a birthday cake in the Grand Salon! Who gets to have that experience? Any cynicism there? Hell no!"
